Parker's Book Talk

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is a New York Times bestseller. It is the exciting beginning of The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. It's full of action, adventure, and various Greek gods and monsters. It's about Percy when he first finds out his father is Poseidon, god of the seas.

He finds out he is not alone because he is one of many half bloods. All these skills come in handy when Zeus's main weapon, the master lightning bolt, has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect.
